    Not bad for the price

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    The V39 is a basic scanner. It appears to be the same as the V19 with some extra software included. It will probably suit the occasional user, but it is clear that Epson cut some corners to save a few cents. The USB-to-micro USB cable that comes with it is about 4 feet long - not nearly long enough to reach from the desk to the back of a tower computer on the floor with enough room to move the computer to plug it in. Plan to buy your own cable. This scanner doesn't have a power button. It gets its power from the USB connection (no separate power supply), so if you care about products that use energy when they aren't needed, or if you care that it will drain your laptop battery even when you don't need the scanner, this is a bad design. (Epson says you can unplug the USB cable when it isn't needed. Really?) The top and sides of the scan are cropped by about 1/8 inch, and this can't be changed. Would it have hurt to design it with another 1/8 inch of travel so the scan shows the entire document on the glass? I guess that's just another penny-pinching design choice. Scans from this scanner are more washed-out than scans from my old Microtek scanner, but keeping the Microtek wasn't an option because there wasn't a Win7 driver for it. Maybe I can adjust the settings to get better scans, but that precludes using the basic Auto settings. Scan time is 10 seconds (300 dpi) or 30 seconds (600 dpi), but that is a published spec, so I knew that before buying it. If you do lots of scanning, you may want something faster. In summary, if you need a scanner infrequently, and you are primarily scanning documents, then this should be fine, but if you will use it more often or will primarily use it for photo scanning, I suggest spending a bit more for a different model.

    A Good Inexpensive USB-Powered Scanner

    • My Best Buy® Member

    It is a decent enough scanner. Price is right, and it works well with Windows 10. It is lightweight, and somewhat flimsy or fragile, though. The images look good. There is only one selection offering 24 bit color, no 48 bit color option, so be warned. This scanner is good, really good. Electric power to the device is provided through it's USB cord to the computer, which can be limiting if you wish to have your scanner any distance from your computer. Get a longer USB cord if you need to use your scanner far from your computer. This scanner is quiet and fast. It is really good....I like it. But it is not great. I have offered up two scans I took, one from older scanner and one from this one. My older scanner took the darker scan, and it is more accurate as to what this coin looks like. This Epson V39 is not as true to what the coin actually looks like in hand. Still good, though.

    Perfect for a low end scanner

    • Verified Purchaser

    I did a great deal of research before choosing this scanner and I was not disappointed. Epson has a solid reputation for its quality and performance and they proved it to me after doing my first test scan. The scan actually looked better than the print I had! If I was going to say something negative I would say that I don't like all the plastic and would question its durability in the long haul, but, after all, it is an relatively inexpensive scanner. If you are looking for an inexpensive scanner and are on a budget than this scanner would be a solid choice.

    Great Little Scanner - Highly Recommend

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    I wound up purchasing this scanner in an emergency up in Nashua, NH. I had a death in the family and I needed to scan a bunch of old hard copy pictures (into my laptop) I located for the funeral. I have a high end scanner in the office (Texas), but that was not an option. "This was the low cost and quick solution I needed." I must have scanned 200 pictures in a small amount of time. The Epson V39 scanner is efficient (fast), scans are excellent quality, and absolutely no issues (ran like a champ). Setup was quick and easy (have always liked Epson scanning software). I was able to get 300 dpi scans with minimum compression quickly with not overly-large files. There is no power supply so the USB chord revs up the scanner (plug and play). I had intended to leave the scanner with one of my relatives, but I liked it so much I am now using it at home. It is small enough to tuck-away on a work desk. I was also able to carry it on the plane trip back to Texas easily (the size of a large laptop, it fit in my backpack easily). I will note that there is no on and off button - the USB signal turns it on. If you leave your computer running 24/7 this may be an issue (will need to unplug it). I have my computer set to sleep after a certain amount of time, and the Epson turns itself off once the computer is at rest. Once you log in again it turns back on.

    Nice scanner

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    Bought this scanner since Canon stopped making drivers for my old Canoscan on Windows 10 and OSX El Capitan. This scanner does the job well. I use it mainly to scan in line art to photoshop. Their software is ok, even though It has crashed on my iMac, but in all fairness, I do get the beach ball of death on a couple of other programs as well.

    It's Really a 24-bit Scanner, Buyer Beware!


    Although the specs on the box indicate this as a scanner capable of 48-bit depth input, it is only capable of 24-bit. You may not notice this if you are simply scanning photos for home use, in which case this scanner will probably work for you. But if you are buying a scanner in order to scan fine art to send to your print guy (like I did), this is a big problem unless your work is all black and white, because 24-bit color scanners are not capable of picking up some of the deeper color tones. I realized this was not really a 48-bit scanner when there was no option in the pull-down menu to scan in 48-bit mode. The Epson technician I talked to over the phone told me himself that, although it says it's capable of 48-bit, it really only offers 24-bit, and that the scanner I want is another model -Epson Perfection v600- which costs about 209.00. So buyer beware. If you want 48-bit, this is not the one.

    good flatbed usb scanner

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    Once the drivers are installed this flatbed scanner does a very good job of scanning individual pages or pictures. It is good for small scanning jobs as each item must be placed on the scanner, scanned, and then removed. This will require about 2 minutes a page.
